Puerto Rico’s Recent History …. “🇵🇷 Understanding Unique Challenges Faced 🇵🇷 …. “!!

PUERTO RICO IS A COLONY OF THE UNITED STATES

UNIQUE POSITION

Many things have happened in Puerto Rico since 1898, the year the United States invaded the Island. It has been continued insult upon insult for almost a century.

After the devastating destruction and subsequent response by the American government, Puerto Rico remains in dire straits.

To add insult to injury, these are the words of the ‘so-called president’ of the mighty, inperialistic U.S. of A. this morning:

Puerto Rico ‘Survived’ So There’s No Need FEMA Or Military Anymore

~Vox added a new video~

Why Puerto Rico will be without power for months
Millions of American citizens will be living in horrible conditions for the foreseeable future.

Yes, Puerto Rico is “an island surround by big water,” but this isn’t just a logistics problem. Here’s what you need to know about Puerto Rico’s recent history to understand the unique challenges they face.

Perpetual victim Drumpf is again blaming Puerto Rico for the island’s problems after it was destroyed by Hurricanes Irma and Maria. The news from PR isn’t good but you won’t find that news on FEMA’s website since they deleted the stats on how much of the island has power.

The U.S. citizens on the island feel abandoned, hungry and frustrated. About 10 percent of the island has power and there are no means of communication with the outside world.

“We cannot keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders, who have been amazing (under the most difficult circumstances) in P.R. forever!” he added.

The good people of Puerto Rico have suffered beyond belief and this f*cking moron wants to take the little bit of help they’re receiving away.

FEMA has not handled the disaster well and even declared that it’s not their job to hand out food and water to hurricane victims. The agency is simply filling out paperwork. And Drumpf is busy tweeting.

This one is personal, Mr. Drumpf.

We’re still waiting to hear from family and friends down there.

Puerto Rico Update …. “🇵🇷 Two Weeks in …. It’s an Exercise in Survival 🇵🇷 …. “!!

PUERTO RICO UPDATE

​”AN EXERCISE IN SURVIVIAL”

This is a post written by my very dear friend Suzy P., who currently lives in Illinois. She spent plenty years in Puerto Rico while her husband Grant worked there.

Suzy absorbed the Puerto Rican culture and ways as second nature. 

Today, from a distance, she feels like we do.

Her soul and her heart ache as much as mine. 

This is a thread written by her husband’s boss just one day ago.

Today, Oct 6th, Grant and I finally heard from Grant’s former boss in Moca, Puerto Rico. Frank was the plant manager for the Baxter Fenwal plant in San Germán for many years.

Frank is one of the most calm, capable, resourceful men that we know.

Grant spoke to Frank the night before Hurricane Maria hit and he was well prepared for the hurricane.

He tells us today that the past two weeks have been truly an exercise in survival.

BLine

Here is the series of text messages we got from Frank today

“Devastation here. No drinking water, running generator, gas supply (on the island) still stabilizing, cell signal now intermittent. We are OK. Bank access limited. Supermarkets having generator issues.

These first two weeks have been an exercise in survival.

Prioritization, focus, luck.”

Dominica Hurricane Maria

“Difficult environment. Eye passed over Moca, 35 minutes, second half horrible. Wind damage extensive in all west coast towns, Aguada, Aguadilla, flooding on coasts, massive erosion.

I’ve lost 11 pounds. Dehydration.

Nightmare scenario – we got nuked.

People helping each other.”

Erosion

“I have never seen or felt anything like this. During the height of the storm, I thought a few times we were history. It felt like a concussive force. And it wouldn’t stop. Rincón sustained significant damage.

Downed power lines, land slides, flooding.

Roads still marginal.”

MAria

After Grant offered to come down and help, Frank wrote:

“Don’t come here, you’ll never get out”.

(Some airlines report they have waiting lists of over 20,000 people wanting to leave the island).

Puerto Rico Faces Extensive Damage After Hurricane Maria

Please keep Puerto Rico’s ongoing humanitarian crisis in the news.

Send donations & prayers.

Many whom we love are there.

Trevor Noah’s Devastated Monologue … Philando Castile dash-cam footage …. ‘It broke me’ …. “!!


Trevor

~~June 23, 2017~~ 

JURY OF YOUR PEERS

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT

Trevor Noah isn’t an American.

Trevor (born 20 February 1984) is a South African television and radio host, and comedian, known for his role as host of The Daily Show on American network Comedy Central since September 2015.

He is a Black man … he knows how this feels.  

America should be ashamed but then again, there is so much to be ashamed for, that this is only a small drop in a huge bucket.

Sad!!

On Wednesday night’s episode, June 21, of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” Trevor Noah devoted the second half of his monologue to his devastation after seeing the just-released dash-cam video footage of the Minnesota police officer who fatally shot Philando Castile during a traffic stop last year.

Last week, the officer was acquitted on all charges, including manslaughter.

Philando

I won’t lie to you.

When I watched this video, it broke me.

It just – it broke me. You see so many of these videos, and you start to get numb, but this one? Seeing the child, that little girl, getting out of the car, after watching a man get killed, it broke my heart into little pieces.

Like, I thought of every joke people make about “Oh, the most confusing day in the hood is Father’s Day”:

“People don’t know where their parents are, ha-ha. Black dads.” That’s a black dad that’s gone.

That’s a child that grows up not knowing what it’s like to have somebody in their life.

It’s one thing to have the system against you – the district attorneys, the police unions, the courts – that’s one thing. But when a jury of your peers, your community, sees this evidence and decides that even this is self-defense, that is truly depressing. Because what they’re basically saying is in America, it is officially reasonable to be afraid of a person just because they are black.

And that’s the truth of what we saw with this verdict.

WORLD AIDS DAY

Anthony S. Fauci, MD, Director, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases
Carl W. Dieffenbach, PhD, Director, Division of AIDS, NIAID

This year, 2016, the world marked the 35th anniversary of the first published reports of what would come to be known as HIV/AIDS.

This disease has wrought enormous suffering and devastation and caused more than 35 million deaths. Yet today, thanks to remarkable achievements in biomedical science and public health, we have the tools to build a better future for individuals living with HIV and for those at risk of infection.

We are hopeful that new approaches currently under exploration could expedite the end of the HIV/AIDS pandemic.

Thoughts for today, #268 …. “NO to More War”!!


NoWar

~~October 18, 2015~~ 

WAR NO MORE

I can’t imagine the horror of that day

Terror and devastation everywhere

I don’t know what to say

How could you not care?

Fire and ashes fell that day

Cries filled the air

Little children couldn’t find their way

Such horrible things after that white glare

War shouldn’t be the answer

It doesn’t solve a thing

It’s just as deadly as cancer

Let the bells of peace ring

We are all part of the same race

That’s the human race!

Something to think about …. “Define priorities or stop pretending”!!


RefugeesEggs

~~September 9, 2015~~ 

THE EGG IS IMPORTANT … TOSS THE KID AWAY?

The Devastation Wrought By ISIS Has Forced 4,000,000 Into Camps

These families have witnessed horrors beyond belief.

Had they remained they would have been slaughtered.

Now they live in tents, with limited access to food water. Supplies are limited and tens-of-thousands are fleeing to Europe.

Even in this crisis, food is being cut off to 200,000 refugees.

In my humble opinion, this graph addresses several topics. All of them controversial.

There are religious people who stand strong in their belief that an unborn child, a zygote, a fetus, should be protected at all costs.

Others have expressed their negative opinions towards refugees in this global movement caused directly by the conflicts and wars in the Middle East.

Many governments in the European Union have turned their back on them.

It’s the people of some countries who have opened their arms to those in need.

If a zygote is good enough for incredible protection, what about the born child?

What about these kids who, by no fault of their own, have been uprooted from what they know and are now refugees?

They should be cherished, protected and fought for as the fertilized egg.

Maybe even more … because they ARE alive!
